Puffin Express

The Puffin tour starts at the Old Harbour of Reykjavík. This tour is a great options for those looking for a short activity since they only takes one hour. 

Lundey and Akurey are two small islands located in the Reykjavík bay area, only 15 minutes away from Reykjavík‘s Old Harbour, from where we depart. The islands are covered with small hills and slopes and both are well known for their colourful bird life. The island‘s shores are rocky but our boat is especially designed to take us as close to the islands as possible due to its shallow drought. When we arrive to the islands we turn off the engine so our passengers can observe the birds and the beautiful surroundings. Our guide will tell us everything there is to know about the Puffins and other birds of interest that are often seen on the Puffin watching tours. Other birds spotted include Northern Fulmars, Gulls, Arctic Terns, and Black Guillemots.
